-- does hillary clinton and the obama administration view the libya intervention as a success? how much did they view that intervention as what precipitated the set of effects afterwards? >> militarily the intervention by nato in libya was clearly judged widely as a success. it forced gadhafi out of power and it changed a state that had been among the most draconian in its practices at all levels into something that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i co
in mali and what they are doing there. is this worrying the obama administration? is there support for this? >> well, obviously the united states is providing refueling facilities for the french warplanes so, yes, the united states is playing a role already. i think there are no comfortable choices and that's one of the realities across the region today, whether it's in mali or syria, post revolution egypt and libya. the united states doesn't have a grand strategy. it's looking at each case individually. the reality is that with islamists taking over northern mali, which is larger than france, just that part of it, this then creates a greater threat throughout the region. and unfortunately the outside world dithered for way too long in trying to figure out a response and to the earlier point, the fact is the africans can't do it themselves. there's been talk for two decades about creating an africa rapid deployment force and they haven't been able to bring it together, provide training, cohesion, command and control and as a result there is no local or regional alternative. >> afri

"the factor" has been investigating a terrible crime in norfolk, virginia. on april 14, 2012, two reporters working at the virginiaan pilot newspaper were driving in a tough part of town after leaving a movie. while stopped at a light, somebody threw a rock at their car, according to the police report. the man in the car, david for ster, got out to con front the rock thrower. who was then attacked by a group of african-american teen-agers. police
for the keystone pipeline. he is urging the obama administration to follow suit. good morning molly. >> the state of february fen had studied an alternative route for the oil pipeline has found it can avoid environmentally sensitive area in the sand dunes in nebraska. they rebuilding the pipeline from canada to texas that would carry oil across the state. the state department would have to approve it. the governor says the alternative group would come close to an aquifer that said any spills would be localized and he would be responsible for the clean up. the pipeline would create $418 for benefits and 16.5 million in state tax revenue. the first proposal for the keystone pipeline the white house says it's waiting on an assessment on an alternative route. >> the state department is conducting its assessment as appropriate and as has been standard over the years on behalf of the federal government. i don't want to get ahead of that process. when the state department as something to move fore wad on we will obviously address that issue when it does. >>> the state department says the federal review
lights the project to the obama administration. the new route would minimize the impact on the environment and stimulate the economy. the state department has to approve the project since it crosses the international border with canada. the pipeline's future is still in doubt. john boehner in a statement said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there's no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay the project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. the obama administration pushed back a decision on the project until after march. >>> according to some commit polling, benjamin netanyahu and his political allies have won election in tuesday's israeli elections. he will get a third term as president but his power is diminished after his party lost about 11 seats. >>> also overseas this morning, british prime minister david cameron made a critical speech on the uk's rocky relationship with the eu. cameron proposed a bold referendum to allow british voters to dec
'll be joined by former governor and senator tim kane to discuss the obama administration's efforts to reduce gun violence. can -- tim ak -- kaine was the governor of virginia during the shootings at virginia tech back in 2007. also, there was an announcement yesterday by senator dianne feinstein, banning assault weapons. that is available on our web site at c-span.org. pentagon lifting the ban on women in combat. tom in ohio, what are your thoughts on all this? caller: there were some women suing the pentagon over the lack of being able to get into combat. the requirement for combat -- they are using that to be promoted. the good old boy network, if you do not want women to advance, you require combat and you cannot let them go to combat. i think the timing is curious with a lawsuit being in court now. host: thank you for the call. date on the republican line, from new jersey. caller: one thing i wanted to point out. i think the gentleman earlier said he was a sniper in vietnam. he brings up some cogent points. i understand and appreciate a lot of what he is saying. i look at it slightly dif
of the obama administration. some spots on facebook -- so we will take your calls all morning on this. also, if you commentary pieces on america's role in the world. this from the front page of the washington times this morning, is the changing of the guard. it is by oliver north. also, in the washington post, today. robert samuelson has a piece called "american century." liz from rockville, maryland, on the democratic line. caller: good morning. i am glad that the wars have ended, but i'm seeing and imperialist role of the u.s. in the world. if there is a humanitarian crisis, it is justifiable to enter the country to stop the government from doing that. but if its is you are just unseating leaders because they're not friendly to u.s. business interests or you are replacing them with leaders who are firmly to u.s. business interests, that it does become imperialism. bowlines are really blurry and we have to watch our step. military industrial complex in this country is really powerful. i don't want it to spill over to the rest of the world and become the imperialists. host: a few tweets --
recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
. erin? >> all right, thanks very much to you, mary. >>> "outfront" next, the obama administration very concerned about the terror threat in northern africa, warning americans to stay away. >>> and later, facebook's ceo likes chris christie. i know where those two met. will the other tech leaders throw their support behind the gop? >>> welcome back to the second half of "outfront." we start with stories where we focus on reporting from the front lines. we begin with north korea, which warns it plans to carry out a nuclear test that targets the united states, the supposed sworn enemy of the korean people. in the u.s., meanwhile, defense secretary leon panetta says he's very concerned with north korea's continuing provocative behavior, but says that the u.s. is fully prepared to deal with. gordon chang, though, the author of "nuclear showdown: north korea takes on the world" says panetta's remarks are refreshingly candid, but says we should be paying attention, because north korea's words are an escalation in the rhetoric, and this time he thinks north korea has the capability to actually
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it. specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
we can get behind. thousands have signed a white house petition asking the obama administration to declare each monday after the super bowl an official day off. police are searching for maple tree thieves. and the ice boat regatta. you're watching "early today". >> now some stories that caught our eye this morning. an incredible high-speed chase in oklahoma city was caught on camera. leaning out the rear window, one of the passengers manages to unhook a trailer, sending it flying toward a car in oncoming traffic. slamming into a light pole and losing the rear wheels eventually slows the suspects to a halt. police apprehend the runaway driver. all on tape. >>> washington state park is facing a bizarre case of sticky fingers. 21 maple trees, some more than 100 years old, have been cut down and stolen from the park. rangers say based on the size and nature of the pieces stolen, thieves took the fine wood to make maple guitars and violins. sadly, even if the thieves are caught, the century-old trees cannot be replaced. maple trees. >>> in tampa the pirates have taken over. yes, they
as much as i do. we know nothing new today. the obama administration was winner and the american people was the loser. we no nothing more than weeks or months ago about this situation and it's still incumbent upon congress to get answers. how can you believe this administration about anything if we can't get straight answers on this terrible tragedy? >> general wes clark, welcome back. another thing is bugging me. state department mid-level officials said on a number of occasions during this whole period that they had three or four or five memos, cables, sent for better security and never got them. today secretary of state clinton said she never saw the cables, never read the cables and winds up blaming republicans for not funding the state department. wes clark, you know bs as well as i do. that is sum of the biggest bs i've heard. >> i will tell you the state department has lost some of its requests for funding and funding in the security area. so that's a fact. secondly there's lots of cables that go back and forth in government. i'm certain the secretary of defense doesn't read all
says the obama administration does not want to take guns from law apwaeuding citizens but -- abiding citizens but wants to stop them from getting in the wrong hands. >> we wanted to pick their brain about what is the most important thing we should be doing. >> the obama administration is pushing for background checks on all gun sales and wants to ban military style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition is clips. he admits it will be an uphill battle. we will have more at 6:00. coming up later why there's a big jump in the number of owners taking gun safety classes. thousands of abortion opponents descended on the nation's capital in the call to the supreme court to overturn roe v wade. they carried mental to the high court. we have more on the rally and march. >> there was almost a celebratory aspect and abortion opponents say victories in state legislatures and were enthusiastic about bringing the message here to the supreme court. they came from all across the country and united in a common goal. >> we need to make sure we abolish this law and mak

, t.j. this is certainly a setback for the obama administration. the white house sharply criticizing this ruling and pointing to the fact that presidents going back 150 years have engaged in appointments, recess appointments. ronald reagan made more than 200. george w bush made more than 100. at issue in this instance is the senate technically in recess when they are in a pro forma session. pro forma means that senators aren't really here. they're not getting any work done. but they are gaveling into session every few days. the obama administration has argued that means that the senate is in recess. this court ruled otherwise and disagreed with the obama administration. republicans are praising this ruling. today they are saying it was the right ruling and that president obama really engaged in overreach when he made those appointments. so to your second question, t.j., what happens now, at this point in time the justice department not weighing in on what it will do next. but if you talk to legal analysts, they believe that the administration will take this to the supreme court. so t
also e-mail us. we're asking you this morning your advice for the second obama administration. isedobama speech rate stark choices, says the new york times. we would like to hear from you this morning, what you think republican options are and what your advice is. here's what's happening on capitol hill today. house gop poised to extend the debt limit. that's the headline in "usa today." the bill would buy time and would set the stage for a physical fight. house republicans are scheduled to vote today to extend a $16.40 trillion at the opening salvo in a renewed battle this year to pass a federal budget and reduce the debt. the headline in the washington times, the front page looks like this -- the reporter on that story and joins us now from the "washington times. good morning and thanks for being with us. guest: thanks for having me. host: when do we expect the vote and why is it significant? guest: because we are fresh off the president's inauguration, it is significant. the fight over the debt ceiling in many ways has defined the last two years as far as spending, because
from his camp. and it's not clear that that camp is going to reach out to the obama administration, that that camp is interested in a peace offering even if the economy is in free fall. it might be convinced that its own survival is intrinsically linked with a conflict with the united states. so even if he's reaching out and he has an intended message of one, it's unclear if that message is going to be received. in the middle east the idea of winning and losing is a little different. there's a much longer historical perspective. the muslim brotherhood, for example, doesn't see this election by morsi or other muslim brotherhood gains as a victory. it's a step on the road to establishing a world as it existed before the collapse of the caliphate, before the disaster, as it sees it, of all the world war i agreements. so it's about winning battles as opposed to winning a decisive war that's going to have a decisive peace. >> richard, you're optimistic this might get through? >> i think i am -- >> i mean steve. >> i think richard is absolutely right. we don't know ultimately how they'll
" with the obama administration, who are staying anonymous because they fear retribution or fear from the white house. this whole thing just seems off, right? i mean there are obviously two intentions with setting it up like this. they're trying to convey the impression that this is a white house who attacks and tears up anybody who disagrees with them. that is the way the right likes to think about this white house, that is the way they operate. they may be more effective if they did, but that is not what they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a right-wing group, you're trying to look like liberals and we can tell. that does it for us, we'll see you monday night. now it is time for "the last
number of felons who have actually amild to buy a gun. the obama administration to the best of my knowledge, has prosecuted virtually none of them. >> schieffer: but there are no background checks at gun shows. >> we already have a background check when you go to a regular gun dealer. a gun dealer who is at a gun show, in fact, does a background check. >> that's right. >> if he's an authorized dealer. all of those folks fill up on the the paperwork. it goes to the federal government-- don't hold me to this-- but i think there are 70,000 cases will of people who are convicted felons trying to buy a gun who was turned down. it's illegal to apply to buy a gun if you're a convicted felon. i think this administration has prosecutedly virtually none of them. so they already have the data. they were not doing anything with it. what i'm trying to say is there is a perennial desire photomake the innocent have a more complicated life because of the hand full who are the guilty rather than focusing on the guilty. >> schieffer: but you still have, at the end of the day, you have these awful t
companies in the world told me that the real problem lies in the policies of the obama administration towards cooperations. >> i think we've got to get our act back together in terms of business and government working together. a tax policy which is predictable. the ability to say how do we create a win/win environment. certain states in the u.s. are doing a good job. those models whether they occur in canada, colorado, uk or israel or russia is what we're looking for. >> just to put this in some perspective for you. that company, cisco, has nearly $40 billion parked overseas, not here in the u.s. and chambers is pretty clear telling me he's not going to be investing a lot of that money in the united states unless policy changes here. so, two very different arguments but the same goal and the same conversation here all week. job creation. and i think the consensus here is that people really want clarity from washington on taxes and on spending. they want to see a long term deal. miguel? >> thank you, poppy harlow. 40 billion bucks, a lot. >>> if you're still on a high from the golden
department. i take it very seriously. >> reporter: republican ron johnson accused the obama administration of covering up the nature of the attack in the weeks following the assault. >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans! was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator! >> reporter: clinton focused her testimony on her efforts to fix security issues at the state department. she pointed out that while security costs have gone up, congress has refused requests for more money and cut the state department budget. senator john mccain, a critic of the administration's response
criticism of her and the obama administration like this from a republican senator and potential 2016 presidential hopeful, rand paul. >> had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables, i would have relieved you from your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> president obama picked senator john kerry to lead the state department after ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. you'll recall rice caught a lot of flack over the benghazi attack. kerry is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. >>> we are still talking about this probably for the last time, though. an inaugural official told cnn that pop star beyonce did not sing the national anthem live on inauguration day. the official asked to not be identified and it was beyonce herself who made the decision the night before. >> now you think it's done? >> i don't think we'll hear from her at least not for a while on this subject. yesterday there was at least a mystery, did she or did she. now it appears she didn't. there you go. >>> the truth about manti te'o, the
. >>> vice president joe bind is heading to richmond virginia to deliver a speech on obama's administration to reduce gun violence. president obama put hit in charge of a gun task force. he will speak at a round table discussion at virginia commonwealth including experts that worked on gun safety issues. >>> the senate introduced a bill to anger gun rights advocates proposing to ban more than 150 military style weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. diane feinstein says for her it's personal. >> i was the one that found supervisor milk's body and i was the one that put a finker in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse -- finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you've been through one of these episodes and once you see what the crime scene is like, it isn't like the movies. it changes your view of weapons. >> the nra says the bill has -- fired back against the bill saying senator feinstein has been trying to. [audio not understandable] >>> it said no assault weapons and angry vendors pulled out by the hundreds and the largest sports and outdoor show in the country is
markts a lot. >> meanwhile, new appointments in the obama administration. timmy geithner, the last day was on friday. i want to ask you about his successor. he's certainly served during a tumultuous time. >> if i'm going to give him one grade, i'm going to give him an "a." are there things he could have done better? >> yes. do i want to relive the financial crisis and try out my theory? no. i thil nk he has to give credit the economy is moving back on its feet. we're still huge on employment, we still don't have a clear path to fast growth. it's very much unfinished business. >> jack lew, what's your tame? >> i don't know him, maria. it's hard for me to have any personal judgment. i have to say i was surprised by it. as a complete outsider, i don't know. there's a little bit that president obama doesn't know what to do and not so much to give him new direction. >> pleasure having you on the program. >> thank you so much. >>> up next, we're "on the money." how would you feel about taking an $11 million pay cut. >> i think it's appropriate. the board had a very tough decision to make. >>
today to promote gun control. he is visiting richmond, va. with other obamas a administration officials and virginia senator tim kaiane. the vice president will hold a roundtable discussion with that spurt to work on gun safety at the 2007 shooting of genentech. biden said his today that he is more concerned limiting the number of rounds in a gun magazines in banning assault weapons is there responsible for small offices of gun deaths. >> we carry the press conference realized his dream morning, when california's dianne feinstein is a new gun legislation that would allow 1 if the assault weapons and the request in belize. it is selling to the original assault weapons ban but does not have a sunset clause. at the original law did which expired in 2004. >> in san mateo tomorrow a part it will hold an anonymous gun buyback of it. anyone can give up their weapons, no questions asked, and receive up to 100 cash for a handgun, shotgun or rifle. to a of a schedule be given for the assault weapon. is having tomorrow at the san miguel county bid from 10:00 until 2:00 p.m.. >> of 49er 10 days awa
the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama administration, of being seen as somewhat of an outsider. and so it's a better way to go up against a republican, you know, after eight years of the obama administration is to have the first woman. that's the logical event that she basically would clear the field, even among the great friends and admirers of joe biden who i think has been the most effective vice president we've seen. the other small foreign policy point, not so small, the president was saying, ask moammar gadhafi and we wouldn't have what we had against mubarak. look at the headlines overnight. look at the streets of egypt, all over egypt today, egypt is hardly a success story that they should be pointing to. >> that's exactly right. in baseball, we're in the first or second inning of the middle east. this literally could be decades of turbulence. we've already seen the relationship between libya and mali and egypt, there's yet to be anything remotely like the consolidation of a democratic political order. so i think we have civil war in syria, we have unrest
right now and make this announcement. two very important positions as far as this obama administration is concerned. both require senate confirmation. >> what are does mary jo white do for diversity? a lot of criticism about diversity in the administration. >> she is a woman obviously and there is criticism that that he is not surrounding himself with enough women. he was talking to a bunch of guys. this will help a little bit. there will be more women down the road by white house officials and don't draw final conclusions about the gender and minority make up of this second term obama administration. the president will be aggressive in getting the excellent people from all sorts of backgrounds. i think let's see what he does. senior positions in the white house are opening up even as we speak right now and the president i'm sure will have a wight range of people being brought in. >> stick around with me for this announcement from the white house. we will take a break and we will be back on the other side. ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk
